Has anyone seen my mojo running around? One thing’s for sure, it ain’t hangin’ with me! This weekend I had the chance to scrap with some super sweet scrappy friends. Very fitting given it was National Scrapbook Day on Saturday. The day started at 9:00 am and ended at 1:30 am. Wanna guess how many layouts I completed in those 16-1/2 hours? Zero. Zip. Zilch. Nada. I couldn’t get my scrappy groove on to save my life!!! I would pick up paper…then put it back down. I sorted through photos…smiled…even laughed at a few…and placed them back in their envelope. I flipped through idea book after idea book looking for inspiration. I certainly found plenty but when I put scissors to paper, I just couldn’t do it. Nothing, and I do mean NOTHING, worked. I finally decided to let it go. Why push it when you aren’t feeling it? There will be other chances and I feel sure Mr. Mojo will eventually return.
I suppose you are wondering what I DID do during all that time. I ooh’ed and ahh’ed over everyone’s creations, helped pull together co-ordinating items for my scrapping friends, spent a nice little chunk of change on new items at the sweet little scrapbook store we visited and laughed until I hurt. Oh yeah, I can’t forget to mention all the food I consumed and you can bet chocolate was devoured in enormous quantities! With my hands idle, I HAD to do something…popping M&M’s seemed to be the best option!!!
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend celebrating National Scrapbook Day! Wishing you a week of sunshine and smiles! xoxo -L
